Cargolifter AG, with registered business address in Berlin, Germany, is engaged in the research, design, development and production of airships and other lighter-than-air vehicles. The company is an airship builder which can carry out heavy load transportation while using almost no infrastructure. It provides solutions to existing problems in the large and heavy load sector. The company was formerly engaged in the development, construction, operation and marketing of large airships for the worldwide transportation of large and heavy goods. The company was created in 1996 in Wiesbaden, Germany with the goal of offering a logistics service based on point-to point transport of heavy or outsized loads.
CargoLifter AG is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The company’s first product, the CL75 balloon-based system, has been in prototype flight test since October 2001. It is capable of carrying an 86-short-ton-payload in either a crane configuration or as a towed vehicle. CargoLifter is also pursuing the CL160 airship, which is capable of carrying outsized and heavy goods over long distances. The company is cooperating with a number of partners and potential users to further define and develop both markets and products. Its airships and services are also compatible with existing truck, rail, and ship carriers and can be used as a supplement in multi-modal transportation.
CargoLifter AG is not only an airship builder; it is a logistics service provider with a fascination of airships. The product is the transportation service, which is rendered by means of the airship.
Description and history
CargoLifter AG is involved in the design and exploitation of large industrial-cargo airships conceived to transport very heavy and bulky objects. It uses huge helium filled balloons to lift and transport these objects and set them in place.The Group is currently a development stage enterprise. Thus, the operating activities of the Group are essentially limited to the development of airships and to the establishment of the required infrastructure. Initial commercial flights and the resulting net revenues are included in the Group’ s financial plan for the 2003 calendar year.
